What causes indoor air pollution?

Many common items may contribute to bad indoor air quality in your Kingston house.

This includes:

  • Chemicals in [carpeting, furniture and drapery that emit fumes
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paint
  • Personal care products
  • Air fresheners and candles

Though they are usually more efficient, modern homes don’t ventilate the way older homes do. Snug weather stripping and storm doors keep indoor air in and outside air out. This offers increased energy savings, but the limited exchange of outdoor and indoor air can create contaminants accumulating indoors.

In these circumstances, a whole-house ventilation system is advised. Ventilation systems exchange contaminated indoor air for cleaner exterior air without sacrificing energy savings.
